For the George to fit in seamlessly with the landscape of Flemington Road, our design team wanted it to reflect the charm of the 100-year old Plane trees lining the boulevard below.  Incorporating a fusion of light and dark – light, airy apartments set within luxurious dark surroundings – its design reflects the silhouette of a Plane tree in winter, and celebrates the sunshine that dapples through its leaves in summer.

Dark hallways create a sense of luxury and calm – an entrance that helps accentuate the light and bright apartments inside. Contributing to a feeling of spaciousness are mirrored kitchen splashbacks, large balconies, wide bathroom mirrors, floor-to-ceiling windows and a clean, fresh palette.

While supporting density on a transport route, the George is also an important and prominent gateway to Melbourne’s city – and one that is a distinct, positive and memorable contribution to the character of Flemington Road and North Melbourne.
